Why Thermoset Plastic Molding

New Applications

MCM Composites, LLC's engineering and molding team assists design engineers with new applications in thermosets. Likely new applications include:

  • Metal to plastic conversion for machined aluminum or steel parts
  • Parts that need strength at temperatures up to 500 F
  • Multiple piece assemblies that can be molded as one

MCM Composites, LLC works with material suppliers to determine best material for customer's specific requirements.

Thermoset Attributes

Thermosets have many great attributes for a wide variety of electrical, mechanical and aesthetic parts.

  • Dimensional stability
  • Mechanical strength
  • Cost advantage versus machined aluminum or steel parts
  • Cost advantage versus assembled aluminum or steel parts as multiple pieces can be molded as one
  • Creep resistance
  • Electric insulating qualities
  • Thermal insulating qualities
  • Sound dampening
  • Low expansion coefficient
  • Low flammability
  • Low fluid absorption (water or chemicals)
  • No corrosion
